"The Ford Festival" (1951)




A weekly variety show that initially tied together the performances with a storyline. (that concept was dropped in favor of straight variety after only a few months).
This is the fourth broadcast from April 26, 1951 and the "storyline" is the 2000th birthday of Paris. Among James Melton's guests are Joan Bennett and Victor Borge.
